people get health care, as obama care. >> right. >> and then thinking that people are -- >> that's their -- that's their logic. >> you know, i do want the to -- let's do the history professor thing a little bit. because krystal, there was this thing during the bush administration called the unitary executive. and this was the idea that was put forward by dick cheney and david addington and their crew that george w. bush had to have extraordinary power. he could set aside the geneva conventions on things like torture. so is the irony just being missed by republicans, that they used to want george w. bush to be extraordinarily power and now they don't like president obama being an uber, meaning awesome president? >> yeah, they were totally comfortable with president bush having wide-ranging executive -- far-reaching and you know, ground-breaking really executive power. this president not so much. but the thing that i find really fascinating too, and you'll remember, it started very early when he started appointing people and he had the -- what they were calling green jobs czars and

"hardball" starts right now. >>> president obama comes here tomorrow. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. i got the christmas eve excitement brug here at hard balance, because tomorrow at precisely this time, the president of the united states is going to join us on "hardball." it's going to be a serious night of questions, certainly for me, questions about executive management methods and the health care rollout, voter suppression across the country and war and peace questions. how we can avert war with iran. we've been hitting these issues on "hardball." i'm hoping the president will be responsive to the concerns that you and i certainly share and the hopes that we have for this country for the next three years. unfortunately, america's still being assaulted by the bizarre benghazi tactics or that he's an illegal alien who shouldn't have been elected in the first place and should be deported to east africa or somewhere more distant. we have a wild and wooly right wing out there that cares nothing a

're wasting the american people's time, holding these hearings. president obama is right. republicans do owe it to the american people to be honest and tell us exactly what you are for. why are you against minimum wage? and everything else that's on the table when it comes to jobs? today the president spoke about income inequality and upward mobility. i thought it was one of the best economic perspective speeches he has ever given. this is what the obama administration is all about. this is what this president is about. this is, i think, why people voted for him. he cares about those who are interested in having the american dream. while the conservatives continually want to whittle it away. joining me now, rapid response panel, washington bureau chief of mother, and msnbc political analyst, david corn with us tonight. also, ruth conniff of the progressive magazine in wisconsin. great to have both of you with us. i want to talk about this. income inequality and upward mobility, ruth. and here are the republicans, not saying the word, but this is really all about the president is re
play left, right? the obama administration said they expect the enrollment to jump dramatically in the coming months. meanwhile, the state exchanges, they're doing even better. how about california alone? 80,000 people in california. now, this is a dirty word. if you connect it to the democrats. private health plan enrollments, 80,000 in the state of california? that's right. and 135,000 have signed up for medicaid. el with, how about new york? in this state, over 250,000 people have completed applications for obama care. over 40,000 people have enrolled in a private plan. and in the state of kentucky, where we were visiting not long ago, now the number is up to over 56,000 people have now enrolled in the private insurance or medicaid in a rural state of kentucky. how in the world could that happen? overall state exchanges nearly doubled their enrollment in the first two weeks of november, compared to all of october. and you know what, you just simply can't argue with the numbers. you can't argue with the result. you can't argue with the guy who went 109 yards for auburn and bea
's right. god help us. the pope is like president obama. this dangerous duo spends their time striving for a better world of equality, faith and freedom. it sounds terrifying, doesn't it? and the hits just keep on coming. that fox column goes on to say, quote, just as president obama has been a disappointment for america, pope francis will prove a disaster for the catholic church. right. so let's just get this. this is the pope who's already reinvigorating a church with more than a billion members. he's called on catholics to more closely follow the teachings of a little book i like to call the bible when it comes to focusing oncalled out the failures of trickle down economics. reportedly snuck outside at night to wash the feet of the homeless. that's the guy. it was put best in a washington post column. limbaugh is right. somebody did get to pope francis. it was jesus. although i keep wondering if what conservatives are really angry about is that the pope's focus on the poor undermines their agenda of tax cuts for the wealthy, demonizing on social issues and cutting food stamps for ki
's right. the gop wants you to believe president obama's health care law is the real war on women. oh, the irony. especially since just last week we learned that gop men are being tutored on how to talk to women. and according to a staff at one of those meetings, quote, some of these guys have a lot to learn. where would they possibly get that idea? >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> the incidents of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low. >> well, maybe they can get some pointers on how to talk to women from the real boss of the party. listen to what he said today. >> -- yourself staring looking at, casually glancing at a woman. but you know that it's now socially taboo. you shouldn't be doing it. and you think everybody is noticing you doing it and condemning you in their minds. you walk up to the woman and say, would you please ask your breasts to stop staring at my eyes. try that. might help. you don't know un
of obama care, right, and who famously, the citizens of kentucky have reaped the benefit. kentucky now leads the nation in new sign-ups for health insurance, and that would be huge anywhere. it is a particularly huge deal for a state whose population is as unhealthful as kentucky's is. i don't mean any offense by it, but kentucky's population ranks at the bottom or toward the bottom of the nation's health ratings in lots and lots and lots of different categories, and kentucky has a lot of uninsured people. and it's the exact same deal two states over in mississippi, but in these two states, in the same part of the country, with the same health problems in their populations and a lot of the same challenges, one of them, kentucky, is now best in the nation in terms of people getting health insurance, and one of them, mississippi, is now worst in the nation, and not because they wouldn't know how to fix their problem. they knew how to fix their problem, but they stopped fixing it. mississippi has enrolled a smaller percentage of its population than any other state in the nation. they do n
would became historic pictures. that photo you showed of a silhouetted obama, it was right next to his desk. >> you know, this photograph, we are told ended up on the desk both of president obama in the white house and of nelson mandela in his office back in south africa. we all know that this past summer when nelson mandela fell ill for the last time, president obama had a trip scheduled to that part of the world. he they did not meet but he did go inside his cell in robben island. here's what he wrote. on behalf of our family, we're deeply humbled to stand where men of such courage faced down injustice and refused to yield. mandela represented and i think michael sheir among others pointed out in the "new york times" today the kind of hope that would become the theme of the president's first campaign. what has been his influence on barack obama and his leadership? >> well, actually, that photo you just took of obama in june of 2013, that was the second time he was in that cell. i was with him the first time in august of 2006 when he was on as a united states senator from illinois whe
are seeing $15 an hour and a right to form a union. in washington president obama is making income in equality one of the pieces of his second term agenda. >> the idea that a child may never escape that poverty because she lumberjacks a decent education or a health care or a community that views her future as their own it should offend all of us. the combined trends of declining mobility it poses a threat to our way of life. what drives me as a zbroond, a son, a father, as an american is to make sure that every striving hard-working optimistic kid in america has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. >> the current minimum wage is $7.25, adjusted for inflation. that's more than $3 less than the minimum wage was back in 1968. president obama said he'll support a senate bill to increase the minimum wage to $10.10 but not going to be easy. >> what would the prospects of that be not only in the senate but the house? >> they are not good. it would be easier to do that than to increase taxes on the wealthy at this point in time because that's been ruled off the table by co
obama will be our guest. yours and mine on this show. he's agreed to sit with me before a big group of college students. that's right. the "hardball" college tour is back big time. and the biggest headliner, the president of the united states. we're going to be hitting my biggest questions with the president before the students of american university. my questions will be the very ones you and i talk about here every night. this destructive politics we're facing in this country, this inability to strike compromise and how we can fix it, this failure of tough personal accountability in government as viewed through the lens of the health care rollout, the attempts out there to suppress the minority vote in three dozen states, and the life and death matters of war and peace. you know where i stand on these matters. you know where you stand. and two nights from now, this thursday at this very time we'll know where the president stands. on "hardball" tonight, escalation. the attack of the wacko birds. running out of ammo, the right wing has gone to ringing the bugle louder. it's not enou
to go so far right that he'll be saying no to everything obama or anybody else offers for the next years. will come in as an absolute obstructionist. what does that do to our country when you have states that have marked themselves off for obstructionism? >> i mean, i think we're in a lot of trouble. in part because these aren't going to be like todd akins. a lot of cases, whoever wins the primary is going to win the election. and so this is just kind of a warning to all republicans that you can't compromise at all. that you can't -- i mean, one of the chris mcdaniel's points against thad cochran is he voted to end the shutdown. so don't vote to end the shutdown. >> i was going to say that's very true, but some of that's going to get worked out in the primary as well. i think chris' question is going to be the one that even some primary voters will ask themselves. so what would be your plan? and so, that's why i say in states like south carolina, it's not a given that it naturally falls a certain way just because it's south and conservative. >> let's look at this web ad against mitch mcc
in the middle of the field right now? >> i think the obama administration should be glad it appears to be first and ten again. it's no longer third and 35. we're a long way from 109 yard field goal return. look, i think you summed it up quite well. the users experience on the front end is greatly enhanced for most people that are using it. i never get tired of watching that clip by the way. >> we're going to keep playing the clip for you. >> god bless you. the front end is in a much better state. there's two things that continue to be worrisome for the administration. one is identification verification, which is obviously crucially important in terms of subsidies you qualify for. equally important is the back end form, 834 form, which is transmitted to the insurance company which actually is where enrollment happens. if for some reason the insurance company isn't get all the data it needs from that form, a person isn't enrolled. look, the good news is the website is much improved. the test, obviously, will come in the next couple of weeks as people who are looking to ensure that they are insure
care act, obama care right now and people are talking about it all over the country and it's a great opportunity for republicans. for to us have a huge year like we did in 1994 we'll have to have the sort of alternatives that bill is talking about. do you hear that, whether it's republican governor's association or in washington now, there is that understanding. i would be stunned if you didn't see a variety of alternatives. >> david gregory for those running for re-election and all the negative messages that are in this narrative right now in terms of obama care how fair are they and how hard of a slog will it be for the white house to try to turn this around? >> i think it will be difficult. ultimately they have to prove successful with the website. they have to have more positive stories that flood the marketplace and the media. look at story after story, morning after morning we're having this conversation of what the difficulties are, what the andy poling is, what we simply are confused by. they are going the need so much success even that's going to lag before they get to a pla
$15 an hour and the right to form a union. meanwhile, in washington, president obama's making income inequality one of the major pieces of his second term agenda. >> the idea that a child may never be able to escape poverty because she lacks a decent education, health care or a community that views her future as their own, that should offend all of us. the combined friends of increased inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the american dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe. so what drives me is a grandson, a son, a father, as an american is to make sure that every striving hard-working, optimistic kid in america has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. >> currently the minimum wage is $7.25. adjusted for inflation. that's more than $3 less than the minimum wage back in 1968. president obama says he will support a senate bill to increase the minimum wage to $10.10. >>> if hillary clinton decides to run for president in 2016, her path to the democratic nomination may have just become a little clearer. the "boston globe
thing that really matters is if you're in a down part of the cycle right before an election. so barack obama doesn't have to face the voters anymore. so a lot of this talk about where he stands in the polls is only relevant if it actually leads to defections among democrats. the republicans already oppose him. if his low poll numbers cause democrats to head for the hills, that's when we should start saying it's really significant. so far, that hasn't happened. so the consequences of his low poll numbers are not yet serious. that doesn't mean they might not get serious in the new year if they can't get their act together on the website. if they do get their act together and these patches work, we don't know the antibiotics answer to that question yet, despite the cheerleading from the white house. if it does get better at the beginning part of the new year, he has every opportunity to have a much more successful 2014. and i think what we're starting to see now on this question of the minimum wage, which affects a lot more than kids, the assumption was it used to just be for teenagers. n
was a communist, this man. he was a communist. >> i would make the argument that we have a great injustice right now in the country with an ever-increasing size of government that's taking over and controlling people's lives and obama care is front and center of that. >> yes! he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting aparthe apartheid. >>> a freedom fighter, a radical, a disrupter of the highest order. his birth name means pulling branches of a tree and pull he did. president mandela not only freed a nation, he reminded the world of our common humanity. he put the good of the south african people, all south africans, above all else. over the course of his 27 years in prison, mandela wisely used his time to prepare, to plan and to embrace both forgiveness and reconciliation. he learned to let go of hatred for other people, recognizing that one of the true evils of apartheid is how it turned people against one another. in the first press conference, 1990, mandela was himself moved by the broader change that had begun to take place in his absence. >> it's a totally different south a
with. they did sort of need something new, right, for the holiday? s and turns out president obama didn't close the vatican embassy, they thought they had a live one there, but that ended up not being true. and they thought they had a huge story when they thought president obama didn't cover babies with the health insurance. but that wasn't true. that one guy that thought his baby was not covered on his health insurance is because that one activist guy forget to list that baby. he forget one of his kids, simple mistake, apparently. the irs scandal turned out not really being a scandal. trying to turn the benghazi scandal into a tragedy other than a tragedy. and they keep trying to pull stunts to repeal obama care, now that hundreds of thousands of people are getting health insurance that they didn't have before. they really need a new thing. they think they would like to hit him now on iran. according to the hill, quote, house republicans are considering various legislative options that would either tacitly or >> test test . >>> today "the hill" newspaper show the country that they, the
'll be that. y'all know the word that i'm talking about. obama care. that's right. i said it and i'm not ashamed. and neither is president obama. because he knows that of all his victories, over two terms in office, his legacy is ultimately going to be remembered for this one single word. i mean, what do you call the president who rescues the u.s. auto industry? obama care. what do you call the president who finally eliminates osama bin laden? obama care. what do you call the president who ends don't ask, don't tell? say it with me. obama care! heard the one about the president who pulled us out of the greatest recession since the great depression? yep, obama care. and what about the one, you know, about the president who reduced drug sentencing disparities? obama care. stop if you have heard this one. a group of underpaid woman and the president who passed a pay equity law walk into a bar -- okay, you see where i'm going with this. short of bringing about world peace before he leaves office, the affordable care act will loom large in the president's legacy, as the singular accompl
's exactly right. i was a student at stanford when i heard the movement about divestment from south africa in 1972. in 1971, barack obama was only ten years old so he was very young and never able to appreciate that. what i want to make clear, though, we shouldn't call him militant, we shouldn't call him a terrorist, he's a patriot. he's just like the patriots fighting here many, many centuries ago for equality. and that's what he was. he was a patriot who tried to make sure that his country where he was born, where he controlled would recognize the fact that the majority of people who were african were suppressed by the minority of people who were white, and that has to be changed. he is a patriot who did a great deal in his 27 years in prison and did a great deal as president and continues to have that legacy as a patriot. i am a south african. i am an african, as he said when he got his honorary degree from harvard in 1998. that became a watershed moment of him recognizing who he was, what he was and who he's speaking for. >> but to all of you here in new york, it wasn't just that perso
, thank you for joining us, "all in" with chris hayes starts right now. >>> good evening from new york, i'm chris hayes, the white house today got the best news it has had in two months about obama care. we will bring that news to you in a moment as well as the president's latest push to get young people to enroll. but it has always been the case, the political fate of obama care would rest ultimately on its performance, what it did for people's lives and not on the lies and slander directed at it from the right. and while the smears deployed against it get shorter and shorter we have the latest example. did you hear about the guy whose baby was denied coverage under obama care? >> those family plan quotes included myself, my wife, our 7, 5, and 7-year-old, and 18 month-old was left off. the response was no, they don't allow family plans under the age of 8. >> this guy tried to sign his family up for insurance on the new york state exchange and they refused to enroll his 18 month-old baby? obama care is anti-toddler? the story, as you might imagine, got a lot of pickup in the right wing m
are facing right now in the cost of obama care, the cost of regulation. i think we need stability in the market. we certainly need to help these people. i thought there were some good things like states that have taken the initiative to raise wages, which, of course, is an option that every state would have. cities can do it as well, if the cost of living could make a difference there. also, andrea, i think that brian's idea earlier that you look at having a wage for students to have jobs and learn how to work in the workplace, but then people working to support a family would have maybe a different criteria. i think there are a lot of ways some of these issues could be addressed. congress is facing a lot of issues right now for our country. >> and they are not working very hard. we had four days where both the house and senate are in until the end of the year. ed rendell, i know governors think they have the answer. you were a former governor. congress is unpopular for a reason. there's a reason we know longer have kay bailey hutchison, olympia snowe and others left in frustratio
care is obama himself. his senior advisers criticizing whether he has the right team around him at this point. over the next few days, honestly speaking, as they continue through december 23rd, it sounds like it has to be the president on the forefront of this. >> part of this effort is they have to -- this is targeted at the public at large consumers who want to sign up, in many ways this is targeted to members of congress, democrats who really lost faith in the white house and president's ability to manage aca. they followed the president's lead for years on this and many of them feel quite burned, particularly on the issue of canceled policies in the individual market. and the white house is having to show here they have the ability to get out in front and try to get people to follow their lead again. and members talked to folks on the hill yesterday, there's a little bit of a wait and see attitude from rank in file members. they are going to want to see how vigorous the push is before they jump in with two feet again. >> speaking of the push from the republican side here, mi
, that op-ed he wrote is an early shot. another piece you have up there this morning, president obama juggling legislative issues right now. republicans, though, going back after health care as we head into 2014. that's really where the focus is going to be for his opponents, isn't it? >> sure s. willie the white house got more excited reaction from liberals, the left democrats and maybe they expected earlier this week when they said on "morning joe" that every day this month up until the deadline that the president was going to be focusing on health care. people got very excited about it. the supporters loved it. but the president has a lot else on his plate. this is a multi-tasking month today. the president is talking about income in equality at 11:15. he will be talking about immigration he has foreign policy and heads up to hawaii at the end of the month. the president has a ton going on t. supporters think there is good news, maybe the website is steadying now want more of the president every day. >> obviously, the republicans will not let up despite they may be setting up polit
